Sarath Fonseka has been found guilty by the 2nd Court Martial and sentenced to three years imprisonment, pending the President’s approval, according to a military official (JNW).

This follows his conviction in the first Court Martial where he was stripped of his General’s rank. In an earlier release published in the Leader, Sarath Fonseka has said “This Court Martial has been set up by President Mahinda Rajapaksa for no other reason, but to put me in jail and kill me politically.”
